Survival, loss, family and renewal are experiences which have touched many of us. Mireille Juchau grapples with these themes in her new elegiac and gripping novel, The World Without Us, a vivid story of ecological disaster and a family bound together by a terrible, mysterious absence. Already awarded the 2016 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for Fiction and shortlisted for The Stella Prize and the Australian Book Industry Award, it is powerful and poetic, revealing Mireille’s multi-layered storytelling talent. She discusses her craft and Jewish influences with Scott Whitmont.
